Former Indian all-rounder Sridharan Sriram has chosen to resign from his position as Australia’s spin bowling coach in order to concentrate on his responsibilities with IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore. Before Australia’s visit of India the following year, the development has occurred.
In the Australian coaching staff since 2015 is Sriram, who participated in eight ODIs between 2000 and 2004.
Prior to being hired as the spin bowling coach in 2016 by Darren Lehmann, the then-head coach, he was a member of the Australia A team during a tour of India.
In a statement, Sriram said that he had made the difficult decision to leave his position as the Australian men’s team’s assistant coach after six years of travelling. With the squad in mind, he believe this is a good time to act so they have ample time to get ready for two World Cups and the World Test Championship. Working across formats, the World Cup, and the Ashes has been a terrific experience for him, and he have learned so much
Sriram reportedly quit his job to concentrate on his IPL work, according to cricket.com.au.
According to cricket.com.au, Sriram, 46, has chosen to concentrate on his coaching work with the Royal Challengers Bangalore and spending more time with his family in Chennai, where he is located.
While on the Australian squad, Sriram worked closely with players such as Nathan Lyon, Adam Zampa, Mitchell Swepson, Glenn Maxwell, and Marnus Labuschagne.
He is well known for his 12/70 performance in the 2017 Pune Test, which aided Steve O’Keefe’s recovery.
Former New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori was recruited as Australia’s bowling coach in May.
Sriram expressed gratitude to his head coaches Darren Lehmann, Justin Langer, and Andrew McDonald as well as his captains Steve Smith, Tim Paine, Aaron Finch, and Pat Cummins for their support.
He thanked Ben Oliver, Brian McFadyen, all of the players, and the staff for making me feel welcome and a part of the squad. Greg Chappell, Troy Cooley, Pat Howard, and Marcus Stoinis, among others, inspired him to get engaged. And he wished the team and coaches nothing but success in the future
